Overkill’s long awaited take on The Walking Dead Universe finally gets a gameplay trailer at the E3 2018 PC Gaming Show. Overkill is known for Payday 1 and 2, but this time they are tackling the gritty Walking Dead universe. Adapting what they have learned from their time with the Payday franchise to the dark world of The Walking Dead.
The trailer shows the over the top brutality over the zombie apocalypse. This first-person shooter draws immediate Left 4 Dead vibes with its hoards of zombies and 4 player co-op. Since we haven’t seen a Left 4 Dead game since 2009 it scratches an itch for players who haven’t had their fill in quite some time. Set in zombie filled streets of Washington D.C players will have to push through zombies in order to make it to the next safe area. We see a glimpse of weapons like a crossbow, sniper rifle, shotgun, sub-machine guns, and even Molotov cocktails. This immediately differentiates itself from the more story-driven Telltale Walking Dead game we’ve been playing for years now. So when this launches be sure to grab some friends and fight your way through the zombie apocalypse.
Overkill’s Walking Dead releases on November 6 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
